Truth is, there's nothing sweet about me. I hate being sweet. p.56Well, this was incredibly cute and sassy. The Old South pageant ways are fun to read about even if I can't really related. Anyway, Jane deals with her issues with being a Magnolia Maid in a hilarious and sarcastic way, but she is a nice girl with plenty of parent issues. She really tries to cheer on the underdogs who end up on the court and does a great job standing up to the mean girl of the group, Ashley, and her henchgirl. She also deals nicely with the old fashioned views of the Head Advisory of the Magnolia Maids. Jane is pretty awesome. I really liked her and felt sorry for her. She is a typical heroine dealing the loss of her mother, the abandonment of her father and her long lost but not forgotten crush all while dealing with a frilly hoopskirt.
